I finally got around to using some Russian charoite for a wedding set.

Probably a bit too feminine for the majority here on LJ’s huh? :)

Those are pretty cool. Really like the inlay… I have tried to make my own six times, and failed six times.

Hi Shannon,

Beautiful rings! You say that you “finally got around” to it, but I say the results were well worth the wait. Beautiful combination of colors – I was wondering which type of wood would look best with the purple shades of Charoite, and as always, you found it!

Happy President’s Day!

John

Thanks for the feedback fellow LJ members! I love this supportive woodworking community. :)

The stone charoite is new to me as well. My awesome uncle was so kind to bring some back from Russia.
